My First Blog Award!

Sweet! My dear friend Andrea, over at Team Garner gave me my very first blogging award! This is a big motivation to make sure that I write more often. I have been slacking, that is fo' sho'! I will be passing this award to 4 bloggers who faithfully write everyday, always make me laugh & are honest about the joys & heartaches of Motherhood. Each of you deserve this award!

What is a Stiletto Award???
There are thousands of blogs, and there are hundreds of awards. The Stiletto Award is a little different than most!

{The Stiletto Award Is For Excellence in Blogging!}

I want to salute the women who balance life, family & relationships with style & class! Those women who share their experiences with us…who encourage us, inspire us, teach us, make us laugh and basically keep us going! You know who they are! While you read this blog, your family is looking at you wondering what the heck you are laughing about so hard…or why the tissue is necessary for Internet browsing. It’s the one that the kids are excited about because a new post means a new craft project or family outing. The one that inspires you to be a better mom, friend, person in general. The one that reminds you that we are all “in this life together” and you’re not the only one going through the hard stuff. The one that you secretly wish your blog was like…
If you’ve received this award, someone out there thinks you deserve it! Be proud! Display the badge with honor! You earned it…after all it means that you brought something special to at least one other person, and really, isn’t that what life’s all about????

This blog award is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents. If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:
1. Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar! Wear it with pride!




5. DO WHAT YOU DO...keep at it. Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life! We love it and we thank you!!!

I pass this award to:

Little Things Are Big

Fishsticks & Fireflies

Thank you all for your honesty, for sharing your life {the good & the not-so-good} & for all of your encouragement...you ladies are awesome!


  1. Awesome! Thanks Elizabeth!

    Oh, and now that you've started receiving awards... you'll really be hooked. ;)

  2. I'm glad you'll be writing more - I look forward to your posts! You're so awesome...

  3. Yay! I forgot to thank you for this award. I am honored!
